How to Make It

Heat the oven to 350°F. Unfold the pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pastry sheets into 2 (12-inch) squares. Cut each square into 24 (2-inch) squares, making 48 in all. Using a sharp knife, cut diagonal lines from each corner of the pastry squares to within 3/4-inch of the center. Fold every other corner to the center and press to seal. Brush the pastries with the egg mixture. Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Using the back of a spoon, press down the centers of the hot pastries to make an indentation. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon gorgonzola cheese in the center of each pastry. Top each with 1/2 teaspoon chopped dates. (See tip for chocolate variation.)

Recipe Tips

  • For Bittersweet Chocolate Superstars, omit the gorgonzola cheese and dates.  Stir 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped and 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper in a small bowl. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon chocolate mixture onto each hot pastry. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar before serving.


  • For Garlic & Rosemary Superstars, substitute garlic & herb spreadable cheese for the gorgonzola.  Pipe or spoon the cheese mixture into the pastries and top with the dates.  Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary.

    This was my third Puff Pastry recipe. It was so simple to make and looked exactly like the picture. Very fun, even kids can help form the stars.
